Word is a blueliner is knicked up. My money is on Smid.
At any rate, I'd go with 77 - 5, 58 - 13, 44 - 24
Give Peckham another chance, sit Sutton cause they're looking to rest hIm (although I thought yesterday was his most physical affair and was good to see him manhandle some players)
I'm guessing Petry was recalled and they put Whitney on injured reserve. Peckham will go to the press box. Sucks for Petry that he's outplayed Peckham but has to stay in the minors until an injury allows him to come back.
How has Barker looked on the right side? Because I think I saw Potter playing on Gilbert's left side for a couple of shifts.
That would be ideal.
Potter playing on a line with Gilbert was probably a result of a line change gone bad, or Peckham missing a shift or two. Potter has played RD pretty much all year and was lined up with Peckham (who was at LD) last night. If you ask me, you don't purposly play guys out of position if you don't have to. I'd keep Potter on the right.
Personally, I hope Petry draws in and one of Peckham/Barker sits.
Smid - Gilbert
Peckham/Sutton - Petry
Sutton/Barker - Potter
I still don't like Sutton (for such a big guy, he's kind of a pansy), but he's outplayed both Barker and Peckham so far this year, so he's earned his spot IMO.
If you are offended by this post, it's probably because you're ugly.
At least Sutton hits hard. I havent seen Peckham deliver a good hit in a long time, and he has been far worse defensively.
I don't know about that. I've Sutton just stare at pucks that get dumped in past him, let it bounce off the end boards out front of the net and he still doesn't do anything. It's like he gets brain freezes or something. Whitney can't get back soon enough.
